That's mostly how it is.

They are symlinks, pointing to the latest stable branch for which there
is an ok build. It's much easier to see this running ls -l on the ftp
machine (which I realize you can't do). E.g,
lrwxr-xr-x 1 pkgmastr netbsd 10 Jul 29 18:57 8.0 -> 8.0_2019Q2
drwxrwxr-x 3 pkgmastr netbsd 512 Sep 20 2018 8.0_2018Q2
drwxrwxr-x 3 pkgmastr netbsd 512 Dec 13 2018 8.0_2018Q3
drwxrwxr-x 3 pkgmastr netbsd 512 Mar 19 18:28 8.0_2018Q4
drwxrwxr-x 3 pkgmastr netbsd 512 Jun 18 06:30 8.0_2019Q1
drwxrwxr-x 3 pkgmastr netbsd 512 Jul 29 18:28 8.0_2019Q2
